  1. Front tyres

    Alfa Giulia
    My old Veloce was the same - I have told the new owner to have the front tyres swapped over before it's done 10000 miles on them; hopefully that will prolong their life as it's painful binning tyres with 4-5mm elsewhere.
  2. The Giulia spotted thread

    Alfa Giulia
    Only with halogen headlamps, as per that car.
  3. Strange juddering when on full lock - QV

    Alfa Giulia
    We really ought to have a sticky topic that new owners could read, detailing little foibles like this. :cheeky:
  4. Points to note for new and potential Giulia owners

    Alfa Giulia
    Yep, guilty as charged, sir! But I do have two years' experience with a Giulia that might still prove useful, whether for newbies or Stelvio owners... Peace to all. :smokin:
  5. Points to note for new and potential Giulia owners

    Alfa Giulia
    You seem to have missed the purpose of the thread and peed off the OP at the same time, so well done. I think it is rather useful to have a thread (sticky would be useful) to highlight common comments about the car, which is what the OP has attempted; it could even contain links to threads...
  6. Thinking about selling...

    Alfa Giulia
    To put this thread to bed, I can say that I have sold the car privately. I did have a couple of bids on Tootle but they weren't quite enough and I got what I wanted. As it happens, a friend asked me some questions about a future purchase of a Giulia and then jumped at the chance to buy mine -...
  7. What have you done to your Giulia today?

    Alfa Giulia
    More than one car; the Giulia was trying to cover sports car, work car, possibly tow car but I am going to end up with two cars to do those tasks now.
  8. What have you done to your Giulia today?

    Alfa Giulia
    I said goodbye to it, that's what I did to my Giulia today. :weeping: Slightly different vehicle required so no room for a saloon any more. Ah well. I will add some thoughts to the experiences thread when I get a mo.
  9. Self opening Veloce. Should I be concerned?

    Alfa Giulia
    I have unlocked my car many times when the keys have been in my pocket, though usually it has been while parked at home. I think I have now learned not to keep the keys in my pocket any longer than strictly necessary.
  10. Fuel filler flap

    Alfa Giulia
    I had mine replaced at the first service and it has been fine ever since (over a year).
  11. Mpg

    Alfa Giulia
    As reported multiple times on here, I don't have to try too hard to return over 40mpg on a motorway run, and it doesn't matter much whether I'm in A, N or D mode. My car didn't have to bed-in, either; its consumption hasn't changed since day one.
  12. Thinking about selling...

    Alfa Giulia
    Yorkshire, a lovely place to visit if you don't already live here! You are welcome to come and view (it's an absolute bargain for a private buyer) but I am also going to try it on Tootle (I didn't really know what it was until I looked the other day, thanks to the mentions on this thread).

  14. Thinking about selling...

    Alfa Giulia
    It's 2017 on a 17 plate, one of the first UK cars, registered end of May.
  15. Veloce Turbine Alloy Corrosion

    Alfa Giulia
    I've had all of my wheel badges replaced under warranty. Wheels themselves are fine, though.
  16. The Giulia spotted thread

    Alfa Giulia
    Saw a lovely white Giulia today (Veloce, I believe). It had a rather nice red interior but some scamp had plonked some cloverleaf badges on it. The cheek of it... https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=882387&thumb=1...
  17. The Giulia spotted thread

    Alfa Giulia
    Doesn't really matter, does it; applying cloverleaf badges doesn't make it a "fake Quad", it's just a nod to Alfa's heritage. I passed a grey Giulia (single pipe, no other obvious clues to model) on the A14 yesterday, while I had a 90s spider behind me - Alfa-tastic!
  18. Giulia Veloce pics and experiences

    Alfa Giulia
    The rear seat catch can be replaced under warranty - a few owners have had that problem now, although not on the first day! Re climate control, if you mean switching off the cooling, just press the button on the central dial (fan speed).
  19. Folding Rear Seat Problem

    Alfa Giulia
    Yep, had my near-side release handle/cable replaced under warranty. Tell your dealer now so that he is prepared and can replace during the service.
  20. The Giulia spotted thread

    Alfa Giulia
    I have been doing some work at a local establishment for a while now but probably only a couple more trips as we are just about complete. And I don't always take the Alfa anyway! :rofl:
